Colin,

What did you use to cover the leading edge with? That wing is really superb. Overall model is fantastic. Flight report?

Tinkrerpilot,
Leading edge and sheeted centre section is white foam hot wire cut. Main spar 1.5 ply with bass wood spar top and bottom 6mm by 10mm.This assembly glued to the back of the foam leading edge.This unit is placed in a vacum bag with HOOP/PINE 1.5mm thick ply cut to fit the top and bottom.
Its left overnight to dry, then glued on rear ribs and the rest of the bits.
Both large models not ready for flight yet.
The small model was built by Chris to test his theories and it flys well, it is nice and stable and is great for aero tow.
